so I finally I was in the position of being the dreaded internal candidate... applied for a permanent position in a school where I am covering a maternity leave. And then I stupidly messed up my interview lesson and didn't get it. My interview and presentation were great apparently. I knew I'd messed up very quickly, my lesson wasn't pitched at the right level. Feeling very very sad, as I love the school and would have loved to stay on longer than the maternity leave. Fed up with letting myself down - I know I'm a good teacher, why is it so hard to show in an interview lesson??? And how will I face everybody at work now that they know I wasn't good enough?
